Covid-19 Restrictions on Travel

The Prime Minister addressed the nation instructing the British people to stay at home in order to protect the NHS and save lives.

This means you must stay at home, only leaving for the following limited purposes:

:•Shopping for basic necessities, as infrequently as possible

.•One form of exercise a day–for example, a run, walk or cycle–alone or with members of your immediate household.

•Any medical need, to provide care or to help a vulnerable person.

•Travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home.

Police will disperse gatherings of more than two people in public, excluding people you live with. Police will issue fines to anyone who does not comply with these rules. Police will close all shops that are not essential, as well as playgrounds and places of worship.

Commenting, James said:

“The Prime Minister has delivered a clear message on the exceptional steps we all must take to combat this terrible virus. We all have responsibilities and we all have our part to play. The weeks ahead will be hard, but together we can and will get through this.”
